A thread with:

Nature, cancer, IPAs, scotch, music festivals, squirrels, a post with the word "skein" in it (Top 10 post nominee in and of itself that one is), Connemara pot still whiskey and haggis?

I think so.....

This thread came straight from Dr Feelgood. Thanks for setting it in motion, Rick.

I still maintain you got the better nut-crunching end of the deal (rodent) relative to our overly aggressive bird-brains (starlings); if only the nightingales had taken instead of the starlings (the "real" Shakesperean bird afterall; did they really think it would make Central Park more refined if any of these birds "took"? Funny, at one level--as to how massively successful one was, while the other was not...I don't recall much of my Shakespeare, but starlings don't get nearly as much play as the nightingales, right?).

I suppose it has something to do with nightingales being territorial while starlings are just a bunch of flockers.
